BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:20 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched several attacks against the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) troops in the Deir Ezzor countryside on Tuesday, a source from the military told Al-Masdar News.

According to the source, the Islamic State launched several attacks in the Al-Jalaa area and Badiyah Al-Mayadeen region, killing and wounding a number of Syrian Arab Army soldiers in the process.

The source said the Syrian Air Force responded to these attacks by launching more than five airstrikes on the Islamic State’s positions in the Badiyah Al-Sham region between the Homs and Deir Ezzor governorates.

These Islamic State attacks have become prevalent over the last three months, as they often hit the Syrian Army’s positions and then disappear into the desert.

In addition to targeting the Syrian Army’s positions, the Islamic State also carries out attacks against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) along the eastern region of the Euphrates River Valley.

Disappear into the desert? Until the RAF really disappears them, I suspect.

When Idlib campaign is wrapped up, its clear what the next target is, It the Al Tanf base occupied by U.S. personnel. That is where these ISIS idiots keep being supplied and trained, coordination Iraq’s PMU is needed by the SAA in order to get rid of the Americans and take their proxy ISIS army with them.

As a sort of consolation it is reported IS also attacks SDF, which is both true but essentially false. Under SAA IS has combat units able to attack sizable SAA forces. Under SDF, IS has sleeper cells, able to murder people, plant bombs. They are unable to operate in force.
